My Bio
Michael was born the youngest of 7 children in a home where money was always in short supply, but love never was. His father was forced to quit school at an early age to work his uncle’s farm, yet, despite the lack of a formal education, he still managed to write a novel in his later years. Inspired by his father, Michael began writing his own poems and short stories. In 2010, while attending Chattanooga State, Michael received First Place in the Phi Theta Kappa 2010 Regional Literary Anthology competition for his essay, “White on White Crime,” which describes his experiences as child growing up in the very same small town in Tennessee where his father had.

Building from personal experiences and his diverse interests and hobbies, Michael A. Walker has constructed a solid foundation of writing that covers a broad spectrum. Glean insight from his nonfiction essays, find inspiration in his poems, or delve into his works of science-fiction and fantasy to experience worlds rich in atmosphere and intrigue. Michael’s sincere passion for each of his subjects and characters breathes life into his work, giving him a voice that resonates with his readers.

Needless to say, in spite of my blog's title and theme, I did not do a good job of defying procrastination - that is until recently. The biggest hurdle I stumbled over was learning that my youngest daughter had decided to give up her first child for adoption – my first grandchild. Although I offered my support in her decision, I did not agree with it. Secretly it ate at my insides like a festering cancer. It

THE TRIALS Ten lunar months had passed since the new recruits first arrived at Watch Fortress Erioch – a speck of time for a Space Marine. For ten months they trained in the ways and traditions that is Deathwatch. Ten months of grueling, relentless training unlike anything they had experienced before, as the Watch Captains oversaw their progress through discriminating eyes. To be selected - to be a chosen champion of their own home Chapters was not enough. Not nearly enough. Only after enduring the mind-numbing procedure of hypno-indoctrination – only after surviving barehanded and armorless combat trials with fearsome alien creatu

You don't have to be a "gamer" to be a fan of Monte Cook's work, although, if you are, he certainly needs no introduction from me. For those of you who aren't gamers, however, a brief history of Monte Cook might be in order. Monte has been authoring and editing books and game systems professionally for more than 20 years, and has compiled an impressive resume of published works. He got his start writing, editing, and designing for Rolemaster and Champions back in 1988. From there, he took those key roles to TSR (now Wizards of the Coast), which led to one of his greatest contributions to role-players abroad - the complete redesign of Dungeon

Okay Michael, I have finished my journal entry. Keep in mind, I'm an artist and not a writer! (I never was very good at it lol) But I did the best I could. Also, I have added a little surprise for deviant art members, I hope it helps drive up the sales, Ron
Wow, Ron... this is certainly unexpected and extremely generous on your part. I am touched and honored, my friend. Thank you so kindly.
Don't thank me yet! I would be surprised if it even sells. lol
You sell your talents short, my friend. :)
thanks for the watch!
